Our Aloe vera Barbadensis Miller is Bio certified and comes from Spain. It grows very easily and needs only time and sun to produce a mature gel full of active substances, vitamins and minerals. Only the 5 to 6 years old leaves will be harvested to have the best quality. We believe as well, that fresh leaves have a better effect that the ready packed juices.
Aloe vera juice is crammed full of amino acids, vitamins and minerals making it one of nature’s most effective cleansers to get rid of any nasty body waste.
When ingested, Aloe vera will interact with the mucus of the stomach and intestine and will have the same nourishing and cleansing effect as applied on the outer skin.
Aloe vera can be applied on the skin for soothing, cooling and moistening.
As a shaving cream
In-the-know beauty buffs swear by pure aloe as the perfect shaving cream: great against cuts it’s slippery, allowing for a nice close shave; and it moisturizes, too. You can use it on its own, or combine with other nourishing ingredients for a more luxe product.
As an exfoliator
It’s not the most pleasant part of grooming, but exfoliation is important if you want to reveal glowing, fresh skin. Aloe is a great base for a homemade scrub because it helps soften your skin, supply oxygen, strengthening the tissue to create vibrant skin. Mix 1/2 cup of aloe with just enough brown sugar or baking soda to get a gritty (but not sharp) texture. Then rub it on your elbows, heels, arms, or wherever else needs softening in the shower.
For dry, cracked feet
Mix together 1/2 cup oatmeal, 1/2 cup corn meal, 4 Tbsp aloe vera gel, and 1/2 cup unscented body lotion and rub all over tired feet until well exfoliated. Sit for 10 minutes, then rinse with warm water.
For bad breath
Come a little closer…no, actually—don’t.
When bad breath hits, drink up to 1/4 cup pure Aloe vera gel dissolved in a 1/2 cup of water or apple juice.
